Over the next week or so I'll be posting short videos on the science, technology, and operations that are part of the ANACONDA expedition. I've written about many of the operations that are conducted daily in earlier blog posts. Now you can see what it looks like!
Featured today is the deployment of the MOCNESS plankton net.Fully extended, it measures about 7 meters long!
Question of the Day
- Do the bacteria in the water make us sick?

Bacteria recycle nutrients, with many steps in nutrient cycles depending on these organisms, such as nitrogen fixation.
